Review of “Reunion” by Jeff Bennington by C.C.Cole

“Reunion” by Jeff Bennington is a novel beginning with a tragic, Columbine (and other schools)-like shooting of a number of high school students by a lone, disturbed teenager.  As the survivors mature into adults, they have a reunion twenty years later to help find closure of the horrific event.  Afterwards the story takes on more of a horror-novel feel, with the evil of the past still awaiting in the shadows, and how every person involved brings the horrific events two decades prior to their own, separate ends.  The creativity of combining real and paranormal horror is an excellent mode of storytelling, and my only critique is a few predictable clichés that should not dissuade readers.  Understandably popular, four stars!
